Costs of printing and volume of material submitted to The American Mineralogist continue to increase, thus mandating measures to conserve space and money in order to minimize page charges and dues. These guidelines have been prepared with these goals in mind; their use makes the preparation of manuscripts for publication more rapid in that they encourage standardization of certain aspects of communication [e.g., similar usage of units, adherence to agreed-upon procedures such as those established by the International Mineralogical Association (IMA)] without constraining authors to inflexible writing styles. Following these guidelines and any revisions listed on the inside back cover of subsequent issues of the journal is likely to reduce time spent during manuscript revision and will help assure rapid publication at reasonable cost.
